TxDOT’s ‘Be Safe. Drive Smart.’ program urges drivers to be alert, exercise caution
Drive Smart” campaign is currently underway and is urging motorists to be alert and exercise caution when traveling around large trucks on Texas roadways. Every day, thousands of large trucks and tractor-trailers travel busy Texas highways, weighing 20 times more than an average car. A good rule of thumb for motorists to remember is that if they can’t see the truck driver in the truck’s side mirror, that truck driver can’t see them or their vehicle either. Drive Smart” is part of the End the Streak Texas program. TxDOT is asking all Texans to commit to driving safely to help end the streak of daily deaths on Texas roadways.
